We understand that build-out projects present special challenges, and our seasoned experts will discuss contingency plans with architects, engineers, and owners to resolve any issues encountered. Internal construction is complicated because it requires both demolition and rebuilding within existing structures. Testing and probing structures while referring to outdated, illegible blueprints can be frustrating. Our professionals use years of expertise to anticipate, analyze, and present viable alternatives for dealing with unpredictable discoveries. Whether a structure needs remodeling, or full interior retrofit, Avant Construction Inc. will work with you to create cost-effective solutions to resolve any problem.
Engineering Requirements for Build-Outs
As existing mechanical and structural infrastructure is exposed during demolition activity, build-outs may require engineering "on the fly." To accommodate the prospective new use of the building, the infrastructure may have to be reinforced. In addition, laboratory tests for the presence of asbestos would require special asbestos recovery methods, also known as asbestos abatement.
Home Improvement Tip!
Looking to give your home a drastic change with just 1 project? Get rid of that popcorn ceiling! What is popcorn ceiling? Wikipedia states - "A popcorn ceiling (slang), also known as cottage cheese ceiling or Stucco ceiling or more accurately an Acoustic ceiling, is a term for a spray-on or paint-on ceiling treatment used from the late 1950s into the 1980s in American residential construction." This ceiling treatment can make an otherwise updated nice home seem very dated. But be warned if your going to try and mess with this stuff on your own. Some popcorn ceilings (especially in homes pre- 1970's) may have ASBESTOS! Get it tested! Another issue that may arise is drywall damage. Sometimes ceilings would get the "popcorn treatment" if the ceiling drywall was installed poorly or had cracks in the seems.
